I'm not quite back yet (in Hong Kong - my last stop before San Francisco!), but I just had to share this one picture of how I got to the Bengkulu airport this morning. Yep - Peter taxied me there on his bike, with my suitcase in my lap. It was a crazy ride, which included a road that slowly turned into a dirt path and then just a field, and we ended up arriving at the airport 15 minutes before my flight was scheduled to depart. I made it though, amazingly.
I'll have lots of other pictures and stories to share soon - can't wait to be home!
